Proposed view 11

A new 30-bedroom hotel with restaurant and visitor centre on the edge of the RSPB Hayle Estuary in Cornwall.

Our proposals take advantage of the incredible Hayle Estuary, home to nearly 20,000 birds, to create a unique landmark hotel complex for both bird watchers and eco-tourists. Designed as part of the landscape, the hotel maximises visitors’ sense of connection to their environment. Bedrooms have panoramic views and feature private balconies complete with binoculars, telescopes and interpretation charts.

The ecolodge uses environmentally friendly materials both internally and externally, and employs various sustainable initiatives to reduce its impact including grey water recycling and reed bed technology. A green biodiversity roof drapes over the ecolodge allowing it to blend seamlessly into the landscape.
